The driver was joining the southbound M6 motorway when they decided to merge before the clearly marked chevrons finished.

What the driver probably didn't realise was that the maneuver was done directly in front of a marked police car, which subsequently resulted in the car being pulled over and the driver being charged with road offences.

Lancashire Road Police took to social media to post the incident, saying: "An absolutely awful bit of driving on the M6 SB and directly in front of a marked car. Reported for offences."

Other Twitter uses echoed the police's viewpoint.

One user said: "What an absolute clown. Surely this sort of stuff should merit a mandatory retest? Just too dangerous to do that on a motorway."

Another user said: "If there were enough hours in the day I could send you a few similar motorway driving antics daily weekly... I'm not surprised anymore."
